Hail was so thick it covered Oconomowoc, WI, like a snowstorm on Friday, June 10th, and impacted commercial buildings need immediate commercial roof inspection services. RestoreMasters has emergency roof repair crews at the scene, ready to assist with leaking roofs and conduct a thorough commercial roof inspection.

Videos posted on social media called the severe weather event an “insane” amount of hail, causing automobile and roof damage. Commercial building owners and managers are urged to request a complimentary roof inspection to fast-track hail damage insurance claims to cover the cost of prompt roof leak repair and replacement.  

A local hailstorm damage map shows a concentrated front stretching from Oconomowoc up Route 67 and as far south as I-94. The yellow section indicates hail upwards of 1.25 inches covering the region. The dense orange section over Oconomowoc shows ice chunks up to 1.75 inches in diameter, pounding neighborhoods, and business districts.

Hail and damage images and videos shared on social media:

​“A strong thunderstorm developed in northwest Waukesha County Friday evening around 5:30 pm and kept back-building over the Oconomowoc area,” according to the National Weather Service. “The storm dropped accumulating hail, with some hail stones as large as golf balls! Hail fell for 20 to 30 minutes. The area received 2.5 inches of rain within a two-hour period of time. Localized street flooding was observed, mainly due to hail clogging storm drains.”

The Friday, June 10th, tornado, high wind, and hail damage map published by the National Weather Service shows a hailstorm cluster specifically targeting Oconomowoc, WI, and the surrounding area. All told, there were 78 high wind incidents, one tornado, and 15 hailstorm reports for the day. A range of social media and traditional news reports demonstrate Waukesha County took the brunt of the hailstorm.

  • Lac La Belle: Hailstones the size of half-dollars cracked shingles and dented metal roofing systems.
  • Oconomowoc: Golf ball-sized hail relentlessly pelted automobiles and rooftops for 20-30 minutes.

It’s imperative that commercial buildings undergo a comprehensive commercial roof inspection following a hailstorm. The dents and cracks left after the storm passes invite water damage and hazardous mold growths. By promptly utilizing commercial roof inspection services, property owners can expedite insurance claims to cover the cost of necessary hail damage roof repair.

Taking proactive measures to correct roof storm damage can save tens of thousands of dollars on building restoration and remediation later. RestoreMasters recently dispatched commercial roof repair experts to Worthington, Minnesota, on May 28, 2022, to provide material support following a devastating hailstorm.

Severe storms, bringing hail, strong winds, or tornadoes can cause severe roof damage, by ripping off roofing systems.

Winds as low as 50 mph can cause some older roofs to be damaged.

The intensity of roof damage is determined by various factors: the velocity and impact of flying debris, the quality of the original installation, the building height and location in relation to other buildings, the angle and shape of the roof, and the material used on the roof.

After a severe storm of hail or high winds, it is important to get your roof inspected, and have a property damage assessment report so that you can learn whether you have damage to your roofing system.

Circumstances do not always allow for immediate repair of roof leaks. In the meantime, an experienced disaster roofing contractor can cover the roof or affected area with a tarp or with a durable plastic shrink wrap material, until such a time when more permanent repairs can be made. We need to stop more moisture damage, so we can prevent mold growth.

Even if you don't think your roof was damaged, you will want to get your roof inspected if your property falls anywhere within the hail damage map.

Some storm damage problems do not produce symptoms right away.

And insurance companies can require you to get a claim in before their deadline.
